Now after all the hype I’ve been compelled lately to watch the Lindsay Lohan docu series which is produced by Pilgrim Studios together with the OWN network owned by Oprah Winfrey.
Just four days out of rehab Lindsay appears on camera calm and collected and declares to Oprah she is going to head to Europe to a yoga and meditation camp. Sounds good to me! She is then advised by Oprah not to go to Europe because of the temptations. She is then followed by the production company hired by Oprah’s OWN network day in, day out filmed consistently with cameras, and hounded by the American paparazzi. To add to all this, she is promised an advance from the production company for a deposit on a new flat, to which the network retract because of Lindsay having some demands about what she wants/doesn’t want filmed.
I think it’s important to remember whilst watching this fly on the wall docu series, that whilst Oprah may come across as wanting the best for Ms Lohan – she is also running a high pressured television network. Lindsay Lohan is big business. The girl is fresh out of rehab. She is consistently relapsing. Catch that on camera? What do you have. Great television.
I dunno Lindsay – I think maybe you should have gone (come) to Europe.
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing…
